I first saw J.Crew’s herringbone vest back in 2014 and I’ve wanted one ever since. Recently, it went on sale for under $40.00 (as opposed to its original $89.00 price on the J.Crew Factory site) and I knew I just had to get it. I’ve loved styling it ever since and today I’m collaborating with my friend Cayleigh from CNPrepster to share our favorite ways to wear the vest! I adore Cayleigh’s blog, so be sure to check it out and read her post here. Enjoy!
As my style has evolved since seeing the herringbone vest for the first time, my vision for an outfit including it shifted from layering it over a Ralph Lauren button down with jeans and ballet flats to what I’m wearing in today’s look. I love mixing simple prints, like the vest’s herringbone with the classic blue pinstripes on this button down. To offset the “preppiness” of the button down and vest combo, I wore a simple and trendy gold choker from KyzBeadz. KyzBeadz has a ton of fun and affordable jewelry that’s super in right now and I’d definitely recommend the Etsy shop! The choker coordinates perfectly with my favorite gold high top sneakers, basic gold hoop earrings, gold Kate Spade watch, and gold and white beaded bracelets from Sashka Co. To add a fall appropriate pop of color, I chose my distressed army green jeans from Old Navy. I absolutely love these pants, they’re super comfortable and perfect for autumn.

The choker from KyzBeadz as well as the beaded bracelets from Sashka Co. featured in this post were sent to me in exchange for a feature in my blog. However, all opinions are honest and my own. I don’t feature products I don’t truly love!
